Ok - One way would to mail the maintainer, but it has to been in the git-repositories.
I installed cognito and pulled the bluez-kernel but I can't make much sense out of git. I can easily live with not updating to 2.6.16, so I give up. But may be someone with more knowledge of git, kernel-pathes or both wants to give it a try....


I felt the same way and for kicks thought to try the 2.6.15-mh2 patch on a 2.6.16 kernel. It has been working for me for over a week now with no odd behavior. I doubt it matters but I also patch with the -ck set.

that worked well for a while... but with the newer 2.6.16-releases they were too diffrent :-(
now there is patch-2.6.16-mh1 :-)
but updating to gentoo-sources-2.6.16-r9 made my mouse jumpy :-(

I haven't checked in a while since I am still kicking here with the older patch.

I used my diNovo with older kernels without patch. Perhaps I will try that patch with 2.16.17. Is there an ebuild for it?

Dont know what it was.. Icould easily live with the older kernel, but had an loose eye on the kernel-updates.
Today a gave 2.6.17-gentoo-r2 (with patch-2.6.17-mh2) a try. Mouse works fine, no problems anymore.
Can't say what fixed it because in the mean time a lot of packages were updated and I've also switched to the modular-X...

Hi,

I tried for several hours now to make my linux system recognize the logitech bluetooth receiver. I failed :)
I also posted this on bluez-users mailing list as I don't know if it's a gentoo or a bluez related problem.

First of all, here's what I've done :

- patched my gentoo 2.6.17 kernel with the patch given on the bluez site.
- recompiled my kernel with everything bluetooth related enabled

Rebooted and tried hid2hci :
Code:
muadib gaboo # hid2hci
Switching device 046d:0b02 to HCI mode was successful


But hciconfig returns nothing.

Then I tried to apply this patch :

Code:
--- drivers/bluetooth/hci_usb.orig      2005-10-21 23:37:25.000000000 -0400
+++ drivers/bluetooth/hci_usb.c 2005-10-21 22:11:02.000000000 -0400
 <at>  <at>  -119,6 +119,9  <at>  <at>
        /* Kensington Bluetooth USB adapter */
        { USB_DEVICE(0x047d, 0x105d), .driver_info = HCI_RESET },

+       /* Logitech diNovo Media Desktop Laser Transceiver for Bluetooth 2.0 */
+        { USB_DEVICE(0x046d, 0xc709), .driver_info = HCI_RESET },
+
        /* ISSC Bluetooth Adapter v3.1 */
        { USB_DEVICE(0x1131, 0x1001), .driver_info = HCI_RESET },


Rebooted, hid2hci, hciconfig : nothing.

My system is an up to date gentoo :
uname -a : Linux muadib 2.6.17-gentoo-r4-mh5 #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Jul 31 01:27:43 CEST 2006 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ GNU/Linux
bluez version :
Code:
muadib gaboo # equery list bluez
[ Searching for package 'bluez' in all categories among: ]
 * installed packages
[I--] [  ] net-wireless/bluez-firmware-1.1 (0)
[I--] [  ] net-wireless/bluez-libs-2.25 (0)
[I--] [  ] net-wireless/bluez-utils-2.25-r1 (0)


I checked that bluez-utils/tools/hid2hci.c contains : "{ HCI, 0x046d, 0x0b02, switch_logitech }, /* Logitech diNovo Media Desktop Laser */"

And here is my /proc/bus/usb/devices (I don't think hid2hci changed something because hid2hci -1 telle me : "No devices in HID mode found")

Do you know what are the ProdID=c70c and ProdID=c70b product ?
Maybe I could try to change the hid2hci patch with these product ids ?

And maybe this can be useful:
Code:
muadib tools # dmesg |grep -i bluetooth
Bluetooth: Core ver 2.10
Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: HCI USB driver ver 2.9
Bluetooth: HCI UART driver ver 2.2
Bluetooth: HCI H4 protocol initialized
Bluetooth: HCI BCSP protocol initialized
Bluetooth: L2CAP ver 2.8
Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: HIDP (Human Interface Emulation) ver 1.1-mh1
Bluetooth: RFCOMM socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM TTY layer initialized
Bluetooth: RFCOMM ver 1.8


So, do you have any idea ? It seems it should work, but I cannot manage to find what's wrong.

Thanks !

Any news on 2.6.18-kernels? I've tried in the past, patching them with the latest 2.6.17-bluez patch but kernel compilation went frak on bluetooth. Does 2.6.18 already incorporate the bluez stuff perhaps?

Latest patch on www.bluez.org is 2.6.17-mh5, I believe.

Hey All,

Just wanted to re-visit the idea of not using the bluez patches. I have tried gentoo-sources w/o the patch and none of my MM keys register whatsoever. With the patch, just about all my keys work as expected.

Anyone have any luck with MM keys and no bluez patch ?

I just bought a diNovo Media Desktop Laser and am trying to work my way through the tutorial. I seem to be hung up fairly early on.

I patched with 2.6.17-mh6 on gentoo-sources-2.6.17-r8 and I got a Makefile patching error which I was expecting. The error was on patching l2cap.h:

Code:
patching file include/net/bluetooth/l2cap.h
patching file Makefile
Hunk #1 FAILED at 1.
1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file Makefile.rej


I then set things in the kernel config as per the howto, but my kernel wouldn't compile, presumably due to the failed patch:

Code:
 CC      net/bluetooth/l2cap.o
net/bluetooth/l2cap.c: In function `l2cap_retransmission_timer':
net/bluetooth/l2cap.c:74: sorry, unimplemented: inlining failed in call to 'l2cap_do_send_rfc': function body not available
net/bluetooth/l2cap.c:143: sorry, unimplemented: called from here
make[2]: *** [net/bluetooth/l2cap.o] Error 1
make[1]: *** [net/bluetooth] Error 2
make: *** [net] Error 2


If anyone has any ideas for me to try, I'm wide open. I spent a lot of time searching the forums and Googling, but found no solutions.

Thanks,
Jason

For me, any kernel after 2.6.17-mm5 (so that'd be mm-sources, yes!) barfs on the patch. Unpatched, I only get "boot-mode", which I presume is what you're experiencing.

Have you tried vanilla-sources yet?

Haven't tried vanilla sources yet. Thanks for the suggestion. I guess that's a project for this evening. I really want to get this working well. It's for my MythTV box and right now I'm using an old beast of a keyboard.

Tried vanilla-sources. That bombed with the same error.

I see there is a 2.6.18 bluez patch available. Has anyone had any luck with the 2.6.18 kernel?

Thanks,

In answer to my own question, I tried the 2.6.18-mh7 patch with the 2.6.18-r1 gentoo-sources with the same errors. If anyone has any other suggestions, I would be most grateful.

Thanks,
Jason

I would, too. I don't see any significant reason why people should be locked to an old 2.6.17 kernel just because of something like this.

Maybe bluez-development has halted?

Hi, I am using kernel 2.6.17 with -mh6 patch and my dmesg output is flooded:

Code:
l2cap_data_channel: sk f611e600 len 14 mode 0x00
l2cap_recv_acldata: conn f5c16300 len 14 flags 0x2
l2cap_recv_frame: len 10, cid 0x0041
l2cap_data_channel: sk f611e600 len 14 mode 0x00
l2cap_recv_acldata: conn f5c16300 len 14 flags 0x2
l2cap_recv_frame: len 10, cid 0x0041
l2cap_data_channel: sk f611e600 len 14 mode 0x00
...


I guess I am in a debugging mode but I can't find where to turn it off. Any ideas?

Did you compile anything with "debug" in the USE flags?

Here are the relavent packages, am I missing anything?

Code:
fibonacci ~ # emerge bluez-utils bluez-libs kdebluetooth usbutils -pv

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] net-wireless/bluez-utils-2.25-r1  USE="alsa cups dbus udev -gtk -pcmcia" 0 kB
[ebuild   R   ] net-wireless/bluez-libs-2.25  0 kB

[ebuild   R   ] sys-apps/usbutils-0.71-r1  0 kB

I have also tried to compile l2cap statically and as module, no change. I can't seem to find anything re: this on google.

I upgraded to 2.6.18 with -mh7 and the l2cap messages are gone. However there was this in dmesg at startup:

"net/bluetooth/hidp/hid.c: event field not found"

Does anyone know what this is?

does anyone know where I can get a 2.6.15 patch, Im running 2.6.15-gentoo-r8 because of acpi problems in higher versions, bluez site only has a patch for .18.

I already did everything from the outdated tutorial, except for the kernel patch and I still get Switching device 046d:0b02 to HCI mode failed (No such file or directory) when I run hid2hci so I guess patching the kernel is the last thing I need to do. ( I use a new dinovo laser version btw)

Hey there,

I have 2.6.13-mh2. If you want to try that, post back.
